ESEE Izula Knives
Where did the name IZULA come from?
The locals in Peru call the meanest, nastiest ant of the jungle by the name "Isula". We know it as the Bullet Ant. The Bullet Ant is known to be independent, tough, light on its feet, and a real aggressive survivor - the IZULA knife is built the same way. This knife is designed to be the perfect lightweight survival kit or concealed carry knife.
This item contains the knife and sheath only.

As advertised. It's pretty sharp and the included sheath fits well on the cross strap of my bag and fits neatly under a cellphone pouch making it nearly invisible when I carry it around. Handle is pretty thin for a guy with big hands such as myself but I wrapped some paracord around it and the grip is much improved. ESEE does, however, sell a handle you can attach to the knife separately should you not want potentially life saving paracord with your knife at all times.
This knife seriously outperforms my expectations. The edge retention is far greater than I expected it to be. the Izula is VERY light. Without any handle scales, the Izula can be easily carried everyday and not really stick out as a "scary knife" by others. This knife is pretty close to perfect.
